Also let me quickly toot my horn...

Besides attending the Festival in Houston, I'll also be doing these shows in Texas:

Anatomy of a Brat
Films that celebrate the American brat.

April 21th, Magnolia Lounge at Fair Park - 1121 First Ave. in Fair Park between the African American Museum and the Old Mill Inn. Contact Video Association of Dallas, 214.428.8700


April 22nd, Alamo Cinema Drafthouse, 409 Colorado St Austin, TX (512) 476-1320 Advanced tickets are available! Two shows!

7 pm, The Sound of Centron
The AV Geeks honor JIM STRINGER, the soundtrack composer and frequent actor of many classic Centron educational films. The show will feature many popular films such as the shoplifting classic, "Caught In A Rip-Off", the hip VD film "The Lunatic", the gorey but catchy industrial safety film "Shake Hands with Danger" and more. Jim will be in attendance and will talk about the films and his work with Centron company. This is a must see!

9 pm, Anatomy of a Brat
Films that celebrate the American brat.

I'd love to meet some of you folks who frequent the Prelinger and Feature Films Archive.

Skip,

I noticed Jim stringer's posting on the the Shake Hands With Danger posting... Did you contact him through that posting? Or was that an earlier happening?

I contacted him before he posted here. I saw his name in a credit for a Centron film. I googled his name and got his email address. He identified the mystery singer of Shake Hands With Danger. Since he lives in Austin, I begged him to co-host a show of some of his films. I'm very excited about this show.
